Leave the stress of the city behind and wander rural roads bordered by century farms and historic homes, where the only traffic jams are caused by slow-going tractors or scads of sun-seekers heading to Sandbanks. Reconnect with nature by hiking, cycling, canoeing or fishing in and around The County’s 800km of shoreline. Feed your senses with music, theatre and performances set in picturesque vineyards or paired with a pint at the local pub. Get your hands dirty at in-studio art workshops or volunteering at an organic farm and visit a place where local isn’t a movement but a way of life. Bring your girlfriends, your partner, your parents, your kids or your pooch – The County has something for everyone, tall and small.
